on my way to race and have MAJOR ISSUE HELP

Okay I hooked uo my mangnafuel 300 pump and aeromotive regulators last night got done at 5 am didn have the tee I needed to test it. I put the tee on this morning turned it on and fuel pressure guages didn come up any so I winched it onto trailer and started heading to a race 4 hours away hoping I could figure something out on the way. I just stopped and put my my finger over the pick up tube in bottom of fuel cell. I barely felt a little bubbling. So I switced the pump since its not labeled in and out then stuck finger over tube again and felt nothing at all??? What im I missing here

as in the other posts. your missing time. this is not an oil change , or replacing the spark plugs. sorry bud but some time it takes weeks to dial it in. you would of save time and money with a little patience and just waited for the next race.

No I was going anyway because its a weekend event i atleast want to watch and my mechanical pump is still there so I can run with it I just cant spray. I work on this thing everyday afyer work atleast till midnight for every weekend theres only 5 races left this year and im trying to make the best out of it and i have litterally zero help at all...But there is only 2 possible ways to turn this pump how could it not be picking up either way? Like I said light bubbling a the tube with my qnd in the cell and nothing turned the other way. And there's no adjustment that I can see on this pump

Also this is with 5/8 line so I thought it would just take a while to pick up but just talked to a buddy and he said sometimes wit everything bein new and lines bein dry sometimes you have to take cap off and blow in tank to pressurize it untill it picks up. Anybody else think this will work
